DIY Mother’s Day Framed Art {Free Printable}

Hi again friends! It’s your blog hostess Aly with you today to share another fun gift idea for Mother’s Day. I love giving handmade gifts because I can create something that really fits the personality of the receiver. My mom has always been an elegant and stylish woman so creating a piece of home decor for her with gold foil and glitter was the first thing that came to mind.

I started by creating my 8×10 print in Photoshop and printing it with my laser printer. If you’d like to use the same print I did, you can download it for free below. Simply cut your 8 1/2x 11 inch paper around the solid lines to make an 8×10 print.

Then I covered my print with a sheet of reactive gold foil and ran it through my Minc machine to seal the gold foil to the printed text.

After creating the gold foil print I cut several gold glitter gems using my Evolution Advanced and the new Gem Dies. My Evolution Advanced is one of my go-to crafting tools. It makes an appearance on almost every project lately. And I love that the new dies come on a magnetic sheet in a resealable pouch with holes to fit in a binder for easy instant storage. So awesome!

Then I adhered the gem die cuts around the outside of my gold foil print, allowing them to extend over the edges.

I trimmed off the excess and placed it in an 8×10 frame. I love it when my crafting tools make gift giving easier! I can’t wait for my mom to open this on Sunday. She’s going to love it.
